Video introducing the new Food Experience Center

We are proud to present the new video of the Food Experience Center, our new innovation and inspiration hub, located in Ghent - Belgium.

The video gives an impression on what the building looks like on the inside and how it reflects our mission, focusing on 3 highlights: the sustainable assets of our building, The Master Kitchen and Master Bakery - the beating heart of the building - and our new way of working, the employee experience.  

About the Food Experience center

The Vandemoortele Food Experience Center is the central hub where we are 'shaping a tasty future' , a nearly zero-energy building that perfectly reflects our ambition and strengthens our position as a leading food group. The Food Experience Center is an inspiring meeting place for customers, suppliers, product developers, culinary chefs and employees. The Master Kitchen & Bakery are the beating hearts of the building, and by extension our company. Innovation and taste starts here.

Come and join the experience!

 

Sustainability

Just like a good recipe consists of a harmonious combination of ingredients, our nearly zero-energy building consists of a well-thought-out combination of circular design, durable materials and innovative technologies. This nearly zero-energy building perfectly reflects our ambition and strengthens our position as a leading food group. It is an inspiring meeting place for customers, suppliers, product developers, culinary chefs and employees. The Master Kitchen & Bakery are the beating hearts of the building, and by extension our company.

Master Studios

Taste is what has defined us since 1899. During workshops, product tastings and inspiring Master Classes, customers have the opportunity to discover new product innovations, improve their cooking and baking skills, acquire the latest consumer insights, and explore great taste – all brought by our culinary advisers, our Masters of Taste.

Employee experience

At Vandemoortele, people make the difference. From the welcoming smile at the reception desk to the chef’s enthusiasm during our Master Classes, everyone is committed to offering a unique experience. The Food Experience Center is a healthy and lively working environment with different interaction zones to connect, communicate and collaborate with each other. Everything supports a work culture that focuses on people and performance, and encourages a more flexible and productive way of working.
